Beyond Rubik's Cube: how big is 43 quintillion?

Huggins-Cooper, Lynn, author

With six different colours, twenty one coloured pieces and fifty four outer surfaces, the Rubik's Cube has a mind-boggling 43 quintillion different possible combinations!  It's hard to imagine what a crowd of one billion people would look like, but if one billion children stood on each other's shoulders, they would reach past the moon!  How Big Is 43 Quintillion helps readers understand large numbers by relating them to everyday situations. Simple explanations accompanied by amusing infographics help readers visualise large numbers and get a grip on basic concepts in Maths. A glossary and further reference material are also included at the end of the book
